The Pamoja is situated on a beautiful, quiet road and is walking distance from town. Rooms are simple with fairly comfy beds and big en suite shower rooms (though, be warned, hot water is not always forthcoming). Food is simple but reasonable (and the Serengeti Lodge just over the road is much better for eating anyway) and staff are friendly.
We stayed here last year and came back again this year - most of the staff are the same and the place still provides good value accommodation as a base for exploring Arusha and the surrounding area.
There is a persistent background smell at the hotel which smells remarkably similar to marijuana, though there is no other evidence of its use. This never interfered with our enjoyment of the hotel (maybe it's an insect repellent???).
